Spencer Howard from Straight to the Points and the amazing award newsletter swings by. We celebrate a big life change before moving on to discuss his recent trip to Dubai, including the Al Maha resort. We of course discuss what it’s like going to Dubai during a pandemic and all the fun things to do at Al Maha. We also discuss flying British Airways business class and what that’s like with new policies in place.
In Final Boarding Call, Spencer discusses the value of using miles and points to pay for cash fares.
